— FEATURED ARTIST — AFRICAINE 808
After years of exploring the depths of musical genres and the boundaries of blending , mixing and refining rhythm patterns and harmonies from around the globe , two Berliners expressed their hard earned musical freedom in a dogma :
The use of a Roland TR-808 analog drum machine in every single track.
They programmed the machine to lay polyrythms over drum and percussion tracks , fascinated -and sometimes puzzled- by it’s own characteristically sudden swing and accent changes, and named it : “Africaine 808 ” – their third and first female bandmember.
The first year of their musical joint venture, the three spent quite some time in remixing and editing some of their favorite african and island funk tunes , transforming the old gold into modern Dj and Dancefloor friendly tunes. The sound of organic grooves mixed with 808-beats and analogue synthesizer baselines became soon a trademark sound, and more and more samples got replaced by live played guitar, bass, organ and percussion.
The trio experimented with different tempi and styles ranging from slow cumbia and exotic rumba themes to islandfunk and percussive disco, electro and housetracks.
In Spring 2012 they first took the project to another level , turning their tracks into a full liveact at one of the VULKANDANCE nights .
Today the project is growing and integrating guest musicians and vocalists – for live performances as well as for recording in the studio.
These 2 self proclaimed music nerds certainly do have a whimsical approach to their art. If it’s not apparent in their bio, it is certainly obvious in their music, like their strangely wonderful addition to the ZOMBIE ELECTRO canon, titled ZOMBIE JAMBOREE. 808’s and voodoo drums.
